Withdrawal of the CH-47C Chinook

30 Jun 1989

The Air Force’s No 12 Squadron at Amberley was disbanded, following an announcement by the Minister for Defence in May that the Tactical Transport Group’s fleet of Boeing CH-47C Chinook medium lift helicopters would be withdrawn from service on cost grounds. The aircraft had been delivered in March 1974 and were in operation by December that year.
